Twitter Adds WhatsApp and LinkedIn Sharing Buttons to Facilitate Broader Tweet Engagement

Twitters seeking to better facilitate the spread of tweets beyond its platform with a new WhatsApp sharing button for users in India, plus a new LinkedIn sharing option, with dedicated tweet presentation in the app.

To begin with, on the brand new WhatsApp button given WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in India (487+ million users), Twitters seeking to lean into that embedded usage, by trying out a fresh, dedicated WhatsApp share button in the low tweet function display.

As you can plainly see in this example, some Indian Twitter users are actually seeing a WhatsApp icon within their tweet engagement options, which enables users to quickly share a tweet making use of their WhatsApp contacts.

After all, sort of. Apparently, Twitter hasnt fully ironed out the functionality of the button up to now but theoretically, what it is going to facilitate is more streamlined tweet sharing into your WhatsApp chats.

Twitter provided this statement on the test (to TechCrunch):

Starting today, we have been rolling out a fresh experiment exclusively in India a significant market for all of us. We have been replacing the share icon on Tweets with the WhatsApp icon in most of individuals who use Twitter on Android in the united kingdom, so sharing a common or noteworthy Tweets is simple even beyond Twitter, making the knowledge more open, accessible, and holistic for them.

Again, WhatsApp may be the key messaging platform in your community, and really, the main element connective tool linking Indian users in to the digital economy, so that it is practical for Twitter to lean into this where it could, with a view to maximizing tweet reach and engagement.

On another front, Twitter in addition has enabled tweet sharing to Snapchat and IG Stories on Android (previously only on iOS), plus a new substitute for share a tweet to LinkedIn.

Thatll provide more methods to share relevant tweets across all your favorite platforms, while also assisting to make sure that Twitter will keep track of such activity – instead of people sharing screenshots of tweets instead, which remain quite typical, and cant be attributed back again to the app itself.

And Twitter would like to track that data, because Twitter remains convinced that thousands of people actually build relationships tweets every month, but never actually log in to the app.

Back 2015, Twitter claimed that it had over 500 million logged out userslooking into tweets on a monthly basis.

That is a lot more than double its current mDAU count. Even though the estimates here seem just a little optimistic, the theory is that tweets drive a lot more engagement and influence than what you can view within their basic analytics stats, and that Twitter itself has far bigger cultural influence than what the raw figures may suggest.

That could be true. Never to this extent, I wouldnt say, but if Twitter can offer more sharing options, and subsequently stay linked to how tweets are increasingly being shared and re-shared in other apps, which could provide another method for it to showcase this element, and the bigger relevance of tweets, beyond its, relatively small user count.

I really do think that Twitter is driving more discussion than what it may look, and itll be interesting to see if these new share buttons find yourself providing more data with this aspect.
